I accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior at an evangelistic tent meeting held by Child Evangelism when I was five years old. When I was 12, I was with my parents in a tiny country called British Honduras (now Belize), where they worked as Baptist missionaries. We got caught in the middle of a huge hurricane. It was so frightening and there was so much lightning and rain, that I honestly thought the Lord was coming back!
I slid down on my knees and rededicated my life to Him, not being positive that I had known what I was doing when I was five! I began teaching Bible classes at school chapels but it wasn’t until I was 27 and my husband was ready to walk out on me, taking our brand new son, that I realized that Jesus was my Lord, my all-sufficiency and that the joy of knowing He will never leave me became my greatest strength.
He is the Great Physician. He healed my marriage and we will celebrate 35 years in August! My husband is my greatest friend and Christian counsel - we have three terrific grown children (two by adoption and one little bonus from scratch!) who are all living for the Lord. I have truly known and experienced God’s incredible grace. I believe with all my heart that the JOY of the Lord is our greatest strength!
"Becky, I just can’t thank you enough for the vibrant and powerful (not to mention hilarious) way you ministered in our midst. Of all the speakers we’ve had in the past few years, including some whom I know quite well, I have to say that you “connected” with our women better than anyone. We were so impressed by the way you threw yourself into your presentation – body, soul, and spirit – 200%." - Maggie, Wheaton, IL
